Mixed Genes

My husband drew me in like a symphony

But the notes got out of rhythym over time

And retuning takes an ear

But faithful is the maker of all music


My son, my first treasure

A strong, strategic mind

Yet so clouded with doubt

Nonetheless, showing itself in glimpses

Soon he will see it too


Precious daughter, an undeserved gift

When all was thought lost.

Not yet fully opened

We see glimpses of sparkles and light

Right now we are going through the bubble wrap and paper


And lastly, myself, and I know I see dimly

Sometimes a warrior, mostly a child

Praying to make sense of all this weaving


Today’s prompt: A family portrait


About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. Recently I have begun writing a couple of blogs. One poetry and one on hope. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused. Soon to be added is another blog...writings on hope from a biblical perspective. Now it can be seen at purplepandasandotherphenomena.blogspot.com. please feel free to visit.
